Stroll thru of the Kalamazoo Ham & antique Hamfest. Great deals of great antique radios & ham equipment. Not numerous purchasers. So, a great event if you were wanting to purchase, yet not so great for the vendors. I snagged a very nice Heathkit CW doubles terminal. Had one concerning 40 years back, while based at Vandenberg AFB, CA. Missed them, yet can never find one more clean operational collection. These worked best, plug & play. I intend to utilize them mostly on 40 meter band, 7.115 Mhz. Look for n6tlu calling CQ. Great deals of individuals going to obtain in front of the electronic camera this time around. I handed out 12 Hammared Ham glasses. Wished to do something various this time around. Everyone was pleasant. A terrific radio get-together. I would very recommend it if you have a possibility to go to a Hamfest. An excellent way to be presented to the leisure activity. We require new members!

Walk thru of the Kalamazoo Ham & antique Hamfest. Lots of great antique radios & ham gear. Unfortunately, not many buyers. So, a great event if you were looking to buy, but not so good for the sellers. I snagged a super nice Heathkit CW twins station. Had one about 40 years ago, while stationed at Vandenberg AFB, CA. Missed them, but could never locate another clean operational set. These worked perfect, plug & play. I plan to use them primarily on 40 meter band, 7.115Mhz. Look for n6tlu calling CQ. Lots of people willing to get in front of the camera this time. I handed out 12 Hammared Ham glasses. Wanted to do something different this time. Everyone was friendly. A great radio social event. If you have a chance to attend a Hamfest, I would highly recommend it. A good way to be introduced to the hobby. We need new blood!

Action 1 of the growth total. Next, I will certainly be relocating onto illumination. It will consist of 12 Eaton Industrial 4 foot LED ceiling place lights. Must supply enough light to carry out surgical procedure! Yes, I recognize in this current world, it may not be the most effective timing, However I think as things come to be harder to get, individuals will transform back to fixing what they have. I wish to be prepared for that modification. D-Lab is increasing. Wish to become part of it? See: https://www.patreon.com/dlab_electronics?fan_landing=true

How to conserve huge cash on multi section radio filter capacitors. A common chassis mount multi section cap will run you regarding $50.00 shipped. You can construct this set on your own for $10.00. The octal base can support any kind of value plan you pick. Radial caps are easily offered. I utilize this approach for many Ham/Shortwave radios as well as smaller tube amplifiers.

Great solution and fun to build. I have Drake R4 and 2B series on hand.
I intend to completely record the design & schematic. My hunch is a Harp player would certainly fall in love with it. We plan to participate in the summer occasion, so there is a lot more to follow.
See thevee.org. for more information on these events. This was the Winter session at Farmington Hills, MI in the Detroit area. What a super swap meet. So many classic pieces. Marcia and I had a great time. Shooting the video was a breeze. Everything fell into place. Normally I do not buy anything, however a retro guitar amp caught my eye. So, I figured why not. Glad I did as it turns out to be a very rare piece. So get ready for a refurbish series on the Premier 110. I plan to fully document the layout & schematic. And of course fully rebuild the amp. I love its style. My guess is a Harp player would fall in love with it. We plan to attend the summer event, so there is much more to follow. So, sit back, sip on your favorite beverage, enjoy the meet.
Yes, a cool new addition to D-Lab’s testing capabilities. This unit is very rare. I was very happy to acquire it. DeVry Model 16004. It has all the features required for Tube radio troubleshooting and repair. Back in the day, it was utilized for training future radio technicians. My guess is it was never offered for sale to the general public. I plan to feature it in upcoming videos. If you have any info/schematics/manuals/ History, please let me know. I am very honored to have this fine piece in my collection. Hope you enjoy!
